The Ryan Gloyer Middle School (RGMS) Musical is an extracurricular opportunity for students in grades seven and eight to participate in all aspects of a full-scale theater production. Students can perform onstage, build and design sets, run stage crew, control lighting and sound, design props and costumes, provide dramaturgy, usher, and serve as stage managers. The RGMS Musical is performed annually during the first or second weekends in November. We will have students from the third and fourth grades to add to our elementary cast. We also have assistance from prior middle school students who are now high schoolers.
All rehearsals are after school and are generally held three to four times a week for six to eight weeks preceding the performances. Students intending to audition should be aware that participation in an after-school sport might coincide with rehearsals and prevent their participation in the play.
We work with students who do not wish to perform on stage, but want to participate back stage as part of our crews. These positions include: sound, lights, set movement, props, costumes and make-up. Anyone who is interested in crew is welcome to join through Microsoft TEAMS. No auditions are required. We will do our best to take all interested stage crew students.
The performances take place at the Seneca Valley Intermediate High School Auditorium. Evening performances begin at 7:00pm and matinee performances begin at 2:00pm.
The Box Office and Concessions areas will open 1 hour prior to the show. The auditorium doors will open 30 minutes prior to show time.
There are many areas where parents can help. Please contact us if you are interested in helping. The musical is a fun and rewarding experience. This is a great way to watch your child work in a team, learn, have fun, and grow.
FINDING NEMO, JR.
Performances will be on November 10 and 11th at 7pm and November 12th at 2pmin IHS Auditorium
Disney’s Finding Nemo JR. is a 60-minute musical adaptation of the beloved 2003 Pixar movie Finding Nemo, with new music by award-winning songwriting team Kristen Anderson-Lopez and Robert Lopez. Marlin, an anxious and over-protective clownfish, lives in the Great Barrier Reef with his kid Nemo, who longs to explore the world beyond their anemone home. But when Nemo is captured and taken to Sydney, Marlin faces his fears and sets off on an epic adventure across the ocean. With the help of lovable characters such as optimistic Dory, laid-back sea turtle Crush, and the supportive Tank Gang, Marlin and Nemo both overcome challenges on their journey to find each other and themselves.
